Kim Spradlin, the 29 year-old bridal shop owner from San Antonio, Texas, has been declared the winner of "Survivor: One World". With the help of her allies Sabrina Thompson and Chelsea Meissner, Spradlin managed to outwit and outsmart two tribes of individuals hellbent on winning the $1 million prize.
Season 24 of the pioneering reality television program found a large group of men and women camping out on the beaches of Samoa. The contestants were initially separated by sex. Spradlin, Thompson, and Meissner formed an alliance early on, allowing the trio to reach the season finale together. Unfortunately, there can only be one winner, and the jury voted for Spradllin.
"I strategized until I was blue in the face," she remarked.
Spradlin later appeared on CBS' "The Talk" in order to claim her oversized $1 million dollar check. During the show, she said that she'd never really had a lot of money, and admitted that she might use some of her winnings to help improve her bridal shop.
"I really was surprised," explained Spradlin. "I tried to make the best of every day."
It would seem that folks on Twitter don't mind that Spradlin was crowed the winner of "Survivor: One World". You can sample some of their responses below.
